Kurt Busch Is On The Move

It's official: Kurt Busch is leaving Stewart-Haas Racing. By every indication, the 2004 Cup champion will be taking over the number one car at Chip Ganassi Racing being vacated by Jamie McMurray. Though mildly surprising, you had a feeling this could be the outcome. Unlike other veteran drivers, there's an apparent good future ahead for "The Outlaw." This is a case where less is more. If Kurt Busch goes to CGR, it'll be a two-man operation with Kyle Larson. Sometimes, one got the feeling ...

There’s Hope For Harvick

So the number four car of Kevin Harvick failed post-race inspection, eh? Fancy that. Everyone colors outside the lines a little, Harvick and company are no worse than anybody else. They say if you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'. The real trick is to avoid getting caught at the wrong time. For Harvick, the timing couldn't be worse. Or is it? Perhaps for Kevin Harvick, it's really not so bad. But he lost his automatic bid for the finals, his crew chief got suspended, and he lost points. I ...

That's some rarified air for what is considered to be SHR's fourth team, and a place they're not accustomed to. The performance of the 10 car in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this season tell us a lot. For one thing, Aric Almirola just might be a better driver than many of us gave him credit for. It seems like an eternity ago that the Cuban-American fr ...

Who? Clint Bowyer? He Did What?

  It seems like a few years back, I remember this racer named Clint Bowyer. He was kind of a funny guy, big into Elvis, and he seemed like he was really coming into his own in NASCAR. To put it a more family friendly way, compost happens. Until Monday, the sunny-natured Kansan hadn't won in 190 races! That's one hellacious dry spell. A lot happens in what amounts to five years. Clint Bowyer got married, had a couple of kids, went through a couple of teams, and here is now running ...
